Potential Energy

I feel all the potential energy of the world crowded up inside my heart like the potential energy of a leaf falling from the height of a cloud.  How at the top it is light but when it lands the whole world will shake.  All of the what ifs and could haves are settled inside of me, building up energy from being contained.  They sit there waiting to fall.

Spread Thin

The moment when you realize you’re so full of ambition, yet stifled by it. Like when a puddle spreads in all directions and becomes so flattened that it cannot flow any further. It becomes stuck. I want to be all of the things, which has meant that I have become none of them.
